In diesem Diagramm sind alle Reihen gezeichnet.

Sehr schöner Poncho, den ich gerne nachstricken möchte. Ich frage mich nur, wie die Strickschrift zu lesen ist. Von Socken kenne ich es, dass nur die ungeraden angegeben sind, in den geraden strickt man die Maschen wie sie erscheinen. Wie ist das hier? Jede Reihe wie in der Grafik (also jeweils anders) oder immer zwei Reihen gleich? Wenn das nicht stimmt, geht es schief...... Danke im Voraus und alles Gute fürs Neue Jahr!

knit = rätstickning på svenska (glatstrikning på dansk) purl = avigstickning på svenska((vrangstrikning på dansk)

Bruce 18.11.2006 - 10:43:

Angie, these - In English/American - these are very basic knitting terms. K means Knit, P means Purl. And there are very many more. But I suspect that this may not help you - as English is probably not your first language. If you would like to write to us at Sales@scandinavianknittingdesign.com we will try to help - but we may not be able to give you the translations of these terms into your own language. You could try to use the Dictionary of terms on the Garnstudio site - this may help you. Bruce
